Le Duplex de Chiberta is a great base for a holiday. We found the apartment to be clean, comfortable and well equipped – fans were provided for all of the main rooms which were invaluable in the hot weather – British visitors might be advised to take a teapot.
The duplex is located in a quiet, residential area, with two boulangeries and a couple of bar/restaurants in easy walking distance. On Eric’s recommendation, we visited Le Soly’ Less for lunch and an evening meal and enjoyed both – the food is excellent and very good value. There is a large Spar store close at hand and the local E.Leclerc supermarket is less than a 10 minute drive away.
The beach, about 2Km away, is backed by 4.5Km boardwalk, great for an afternoon/early evening stroll. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants at each end – more at the Biarritz end - sitting at an outside table, enjoying an evening meal while watching the sun set is something worth experiencing.
Eric provided excellent customer service, giving us a comprehensive run down of the local amenities e.g. which local boulangerie was the best, when the local markets were held and which restaurants in Biarritz/Anglet/Bayonne are good. We managed to eat in several of them and enjoyed the food in them all – if you are thinking of trying Chez Nous in Anglet, book first, we arrived early Friday lunchtime, the place was empty but we were informed that they were fully booked. He also suggested several local tours with picturesque villages
Comfortable and well-equipped duplex in Anglet, between Biarritz and Bayonne. It is well situated for beaches , shopping and lots of activities. The forest of Chiberta is nearby for walks and a great Thalassotherapy centre with pool is situsted less than 10 minutes away.
Eric, the owner is very helpful and knowledgeable for all things local and further afield. Many charming towns and beachside resorts are all within easy reach, including wonderful San Sebastian, across the border into Spain (about 40 minutes drive) .
Good shops, including lots of specialist chocolate boitques, in Bayonne. There are many restaurants there too. Nearer the house, Les Halles in Cinq Cantons, is well worth a visit. It's just five minutes away.
A good local restaurant, Les Soly'less, is a short walk from the property. The proprietor is Can and it was on her recommendation thst we visited Labastide Clairance, a pretty and historic little town about 35 km away. Local Spar, just up the road from the property, is vey good, as is the bakery. The only slight drawback was that the Wifi was slow and not very reliable, but Eric is addressing this. All in all, we had a lovely stay.
